We are so excited to finally launch Just Married Ministries with you! This ministry is something God has been pressing on our hearts long before Jon and I even met and we cannot believe it is actually here! Isn’t it crazy how God can take you down one path that you never thought could twist and turn to where it is now?

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your path straight.” – Proverbs 3:5-6

Amen to Proverbs 3:5-6. Even after all of those days of doubt, fear, and worry God has brought us here. It wasn’t easy my friends. It took many prayers, breakdowns, and fighting for time with Jesus to get to where we are. This is only the beginning, but He has been faithful. He has made our path straight.

We love LOVE. We are suckers for love stories and we’ll take a break to listen to anyone’s first date. There is something about love that brings out the best in people. Especially during the point everyone likes to refer to as “puppy love” or the “honeymoon” stage. We once had a lady ask us how long we had been married just 4 months after our wedding. Her response, “Oh, there’s still honey all over y’all’s moon!”

However, we are also very aware that where there is love, there is heartbreak. The more you love someone, the more capable they are of hurting you. This is a truth we have found in every relationship. Sadly, people have traded in their covenant of marriage for the idea and the false promises of the American Dream. People seek happiness rather than healthiness in their marriages, and this has lead to the depressing divorce statistics of America.

Just Married Ministries was created to not only help people fight for their marriages in light of the gospel, but to live out a life that looks different to the American Dream. We passionately believe that Christ-centered marriages can change the world. We’re here to be a voice for the voiceless and to rise up a generation of believers who are not only hearers of the Word, but doers for HIS Kingdom! We want to make our marriages count in light of eternity and hope that you will join us as we make this journey with God’s Word as our guide.
